Consider our future: youth bring message to premiers as health accord negotiations heat up

[Victoria] A delegation of youth gathered at the Council of the Federation meeting today to welcome the premiers to B.C. with a message: the future of the health care system is in question and we want a say.

"Young people have a stake in the future of our health care system," said delegation member Vince Terstappen. "Discussions in preparation for the 2014 Health Accord are excellent opportunities for all of the provinces to work together to listen and respond to the input of young people."

The delegates, including students and young doctors, brought umbrellas as gifts to the premiers to symbolize health coverage for all, joking that the premiers would need them for their stay in rainy B.C.
